Hotel Mumbai is one of the finest movies I have watched in recent times which shows the real sequence of events in the scene of crime (scenes in this case). Its brutal, very dark and heart-wrenching, but its the truth. It is what us Indians faced 10 years ago. The ordeal of the people stuck in the attack and the trauma entire nation faced.
The story tells about the courage and kindness people showed while facing this ghastly terrorist attack, however the story doesn't shy back from showing the loopholes in the security system and the darker shades of human nature.
I am not sure what can I say about the actors because I didn't see any. All I saw were ordinary people who played their parts, be it the culprits or the victims. Everyone seemed to be perfectly placed in their roles and essayed their part with absolute honesty and perseverance.
What I enjoyed the most about this movie was that there was no high end political drama driving the whole situation. The director talked about the real situation about how all hell broke loose, so the movie is deep in all aspects and doesn't shallow down at any part.
Honestly, I had a tough time watching it because every bullet shot in the movie made my heart go out to my innocent people who suffered this insanity. But in terms of cinema this is fabulous piece of art.
